I'm honestly puzzled how pointing out that Augustine is a well-recognized male name in English-speaking countries is attacking you.
To answer the original post question, I love both Augustine and...
Also, while Americans can be blamed for a great many things, I think you will find the standard English spelling "Augustine" (male) dates back to the Middle Ages in England. ;)
Sure. But as the OP gave no indication of wanting a name that translates perfectly across all cultures and languages, it seems a bit harsh to assert that Augustine is only a girl's name, as you...

Definitely acceptable, and I think fairly intuitive to pronounce even for people who aren't familiar with it. I'm in a Scandinavian-heavy area of the Midwest, and Soren would not even raise an...
I love Lewis, and vastly prefer this spelling to Louis.
I like both Edward and Edmund! We considered Edmund but SO felt it was too strongly identified with Narnia in our social circles. :)
Not true - Saint Augustine was a man.
I think this is one of those names where you are just going to have to resolve to be ok with correcting people's pronunciation, or look for a different name. The "Louie" spelling would certainly make...
Interesting - I've never heard of this prison. A Google search reveals its in the UK. It's possible I'm just oblivious, but I don't think it's well-known here in the States. :)
Thank you to...
I should add, both middle name options are family names. :)
Please help us choose a middle for Augustine (pron. au-GUS-ten, like the Saint)!
I'm racking my brain to come up with a boy's name to use in the middle name spot to honor a beloved grandmother whose name was Dee, but I'm coming up blank other than just using some random name...

Thank you all!
I agree. I don't actually mind Fred too much should he eventually want to go by that (and I suspect DH would even come around to it by that time), but I do vastly prefer both Fritz and Freddie, so I...
I love it, but I have a soft spot for most all the German -ric(k) names. :)
Do you think that certain nicknames are inevitable in this day and age? I know most of us grew up with people assuming we went by nicknames (Andrew was assumed to be Andy, Abigail to be Abby, etc.),...

Hello Scandavian and German-speaking Berries! We are considering the name Henrik for our son, and I'm curious as to what (if any) nicknames there are in your part of the world for...
I think Thompson is a lovely first name given the familial significance.

I love your sons' names! How about:

Hello all, I'd love your help narrowing down names for our baby boy due this summer. Our list of contenders is:

Used the numerals so that this thread won't show up in search results if, say, someone in my family were googling our family names. :)

Here's a question for you all - would you use a name to honor a departed family member, if when alive they went by a nickname or middle name due to not liking their name? My beloved grandmother was...
How about Summit? I know a little boy named that, and it'd definitely fit a Colorado vibe. :)
